Charlton Athletic vs. Exeter City

The Valley

PREVIEW: Charlton v Exeter


Exeter City return to the Capital in what will be a tough trip to the Valley to face high flying Charlton Athletic.

Athletic have regrouped well since their relegation from the Championship, and won their first six games to top the table. Since then, they have picked up two draws and now sit second in the table behind Leeds United

The Grecians will not fear this test, and encounter this match in high spirits after a good return of four points from the last two games, including last weekend`s maiden home victory of the season over Tranmere Rovers. However, this will be a strong test and City will have to dramatically improve on their recent away performances to come away from here with a result.

Vital Quotes:

Charlton Athletic Team News:


Striker Deon Burton is expected to be fit despite breaking his nose against Norwich City last Saturday.

Frazer Richardson and Lloyd Sam have also suffered minor injuries but are expected to be fit.

Player to watch: Deon Burton

The addicks striker has scored in each of the last three games.

Exeter City Team News:

Goalkeeper Paul Jones is making a quick recovery from knee surgery and could be contention, but the likelihood is that Oscar Jansson will continue between the sticks.

On loan winger Craig Noone is a doubt after suffering bruised toes in last Saturday`s victory over Tranmere.

Striker Craig McAllister and midfielder Joe Burnell are also doubts but Scott Golbourne should make the squad.

Player to watch: Ryan Harley

The creative midfielder has been impressive this season and has added some much needed steel to his game.

Match Facts & Stats

04/01/03
Charlton Athletic 3 Exeter City 1; FA Cup 3rd Round

Despite our struggles in the League, City made it through to the third round of the FA Cup in our relegation season after wins over Forest Green Rovers and Rushden & Diamonds. Jonatan Johanasson opening the scoring for Charlton in the first half, but an equaliser for the Grecians by Santos Gaia early in the second half provoked pandemonium in the away end. But it wasn`t to be for the Grecians, as the Premier League side eventually ran out 3-1 winners.

Match Prediction:

Charlton Athletic 2 Exeter City 0 Unfortunately, I can`t see City picking up a result here, especially if we play one up front, which could lead to a toothless attack and the defence not being able to hold out.
